Coast Guard Leader Signals He’ll Defy Trump on Transgender Order

Obama’s uber-libs in the US Armed Forces command are still clinging to hopes they can protect and defend the leftist agenda of their former president while they’re still busy protecting and defending these United States of America.

To wit, Commandant Adm. Paul Zukunft, head of the US Coast Guard, signaled in recent days that he intends to willfully ignore the President’s order regarding transgenders serving in the military.

If that comes to pass, it could mean yet another firing of Obama cronies by the Trump administration.

Good riddance.

It’s time to clean house and let the military do what the military is supposed to do.

And for those naysayers out there, current military criteria for disqualification from service already include ‘Psychosexual Conditions’ due to ‘transsexualism, exhibitionism, transvestitism, voyeurism, and other paraphilias’.

That’s some fairly plain English.

Here’s more from Redstate…

If you have more than a dozen members of the Coast Guard struggling openly with mental illness, then the problem wasn’t with President Trump’s Twitter ban on transgendered service members.

A new report says that officials with the Coast Guard rushed to coddle those stricken members, after Trump took to Twitter last week to erroneously announce a ban on allowing those suffering from gender dysphoria to use the military as a funding source for their cosmetic fixes.

Said Commandant Adm. Paul Zukunft:

“The first thing we did is we reached out to all 13 members of the Coast Guard who have come out” as transgender, Zukunft told attendees at a Center for Strategic and International Studies event in Washington.

Zukunft said he contacted Lt. Taylor Miller, the Coast Guard’s first openly transitioning officer who was featured in a Washington Post article last week.

“If you read that story, Taylor’s family has disowned her. … And I told Taylor, I will not turn my back. We have made an investment in you and you have made an investment in the Coast Guard and I will not break faith,” Zukunft said.

That’s all well and good. How much has this troubled man been tested? How will he hold up if he ever is put in a position that cut him off from his supply of hormone treatments?
